Lustiges Vöglein im Walde

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Lustiges]1 Vöglein im Walde,
Freust dich des Frühlings so sehr,
Wohl dir, du weisst nicht wie balde
Alles verblüht ist umher.
Fliege her, flatt're hin,
Vöglein hat fröhlichen Sinn!

Freudiges Herz in der Brust dir,
Singst du von Glück ohne End',
Weisst nicht, wie nah der Verlust dir,
Der von dem Glücke dich trennt.
Fliege her, flatt're hin,
Vöglein hat fröhlichen Sinn!
